a turn for the unexpected actually it's the pressure of the prime minister that is reflected on the media and we think it's unfair other channels didn't. initial journals sharing this information and we have to find out about it on the international channels it's unfair to the people but many believe there is a certain responsibility that comes with being a provider of news and those in turkey have failed at it i don't know what will happen in the future but we have all the one channel which shows everything in this country and it's really really our company says that i cannot stand in for example my mother she lives in a little village if i don't call her she will know nothing but the growing magnitude of protests some of the privately owned channels caught on to the event and tried to make up for lost time when there's one news channel which has the director of new zealand said that they were sorry and they made a mistake for not covering. their covering its quite well but the boss the state media is is not. saying that it's. misguided people or manipulated
8:04 am
by some extreme risk groups a far fetched stance it may be but those on taksim just as thousands of people on streets and squares all over turkey don't really seem to care anymore they don't need a t.v. broadcast to show them what's really happening where they are it in english go r.t. istanbul activists are using social media to spread fresh footage of police brutality like this video reportedly showing a civilian takes to the ground and then stoked by storm by several officers despite pleasing from. agency romney has been on top of the latest developments in the capital providing exclusive footage and interviews and one person i spoke to a local baker says he was randomly taunted by police despite having nothing to do with the protests. we got along with i went out to buy cigarettes the police didn't ask me anything they just beat me. demonstrators and

the world that aim to repress freedom of speech and democratic movements of reading from new york marina fortnight r.t. . and goldstein that was one of those to police an anchor on his vow to be by a count on the streets with the da straight was standing up for freedom and democracy i am one of the most that has been exposed as i did cheer gas and water cannon it reduced my weakness and caused crying and sneezing and since i had asked too much during the event i had multiple severe estimates x. and i can say that may improve booker police and government your tired of dealing government with corrupt media we don't have any. checks seem this matter has become a matter of more than just a bunch of trees this is a protest against the north can tell you that hurts its own people they cannot scare us we do not do any harm to anyone or anything. but however provokers
8:09 am
such as government and police officer holds us and shows us that we heard every word without any reason that's we cannot accept that and let's not get reaction from heroes of the ankara bureau chief of a daily newspaper. the sink a very much indeed for joining us now the prime minister claims the protests are under control and will be put to an end in just a couple of days and in the few next days but so it's all we are only seeing them grow what actions can we expect from adam. well there might be two two alternatives one is that you can you can. you can continue with his deputy is soft and approach as you know yesterday to be prime minister. has apologized from it are part of the paula jones from from the protesters is
8:10 am
a prime minister who always it is in africa trip so when he when he comes back you know he might soften his approach or he might rather than go on to continue it is harder way of you know sort of. you know sort of downsizing the protesters and not taking into consideration their demands my personal expect and his death you might go to the second alternative. one takis t.v. station has apologized for failing to cover the initial prize has all the dots patients not getting proper coverage in the country. it is better than it was at. first days. i mean because we were also in the on the on the grant and it was you know i mean like ninety nine or ninety five percent of the t.v. channels dirt for votes guessing nothing about the protests in the first meeting
8:11 am
three or four based but now only one of the main news channels and t.v. as you know except they are mistaken apologize from the from the people that on the front protested for on the people and it seems that. people are guessing seems to be more balance actually came in pattern with the with this softening approach of the government to actually. do one step is he has said police only force one provide the crackdown has continued so they still being provided. i don't think i don't think it was it was only when they went their protocol and when you if you're seeing the photographs do you do film footage or indeed prove to be the new t.v. channels. so you can see that the police is showing on balance it's excessive violence against against protesters. the protests are continuing some of them are
8:12 am
very peaceful some of them a truce. at tens and look for instance last night as far as we have learned in on kara there has been police. use of one of those against the against protest protesters in cairo but there are also some some it came in. from from like twitter users etc so it's a bit i mean it's not easy to say that they are that they are always acting with their provoked. brawn debt ramifications do you expect to have for the country and the region especially considering syria is just across the border. yes i mean it would border a very for instance yesterday we have witnessed the stock exchange has fallen ten percent as you know turkey to turkish government but turkey in the last couple of
8:13 am
years were very proud of its economy and its for the benefit of the turkish people if the economies go on those down and the stability or the economic stability and of course political stability going to be might be in danger and as you know we are in we're in such a conjecture that there is syria but there are also internal and international events happening so the disability. is weakened or damaged in turkey might be regional and maybe global ramifications actually write a check a rose at the un crowd bureau chief of the daily technician newspaper thank you very much indeed thank you very much.

an extreme opinion sometimes leads to an offensive tweets which could be days long trial that's increasingly this is great britain west social media users have to watch what they post online abusive comments rest across the country and acts of us war the law has become too zealous about hunting down tweeting trolls. and best. we trust our officers with a baton we trust some of the c.i. sprit and yet for some reason we can't trust them a twitter account in the wake of the recent will it murder a number of arrests were made across the country after police responded to tweets it was the latest clear sign that police are in placing seychelle media in a way they never have before twitter might be new police territory but their actions tread a fine line already someone familiar with the legal ramifications of their tweets felt the full force of the law was one notable example came after a tweet to footballer james mcclean joining in online anger at the footballers

decision not to wear a remembrance day poppy katie aiden lucky tweeted he deserves to be shot dead alongside a picture of bullets two weeks later and he was arrested by manchester police do you feel like you crossed the line looking back on their. time i think i thought i was the consequences they katie's cases since being dropped it's easy to see the cyber threats can cause real fear and often is deserving of punishment but other cases have ranged from the confusing to the downright ludicrous and figures obtained by r.t. show a steadily rising number of prosecutions in person under the communications act two thousand and three including phone calls emails and social media posts within the police service of the other public sectors but it really is more of both leadership
8:16 am
and technology you know the technology needs to change absolutely fundamentally one needs to change is the attitude that leaders have towards social media many see as a huge risk what they feel to recognise is the fantastic opportunity to really display the great skills great problem solving skill. on the great level seven new guidelines set to be made final by the criminal prosecution service in the coming weeks but with the explosion of social media leaving british little fighting to catch up many in the legal profession a warning that social media eases now need to tread very carefully i mean it is very deeply concerning i think the only legal perspective and i guess it would be interesting to see your advice to people that actually even though it's a case of say some of the say it things that when it comes to say she made it but it is and she bad thing they say well i'm afraid that simply isn't my proof or.
8:17 am
neither is facebook and your activities. well that's never been the focus so. the advice is be extremely tough for. sarah. london on coming out indefinite detention shutdown denied the u.s. congress plans and now the head of what happens to close guantanamo bay but prisoners have been hunger striking for the cost for months. you know sometimes you see a story and it seems so for life you think you understand it and then you glimpse something else you hear or see some other part of it and realize everything you thought you knew you don't know i'm trying hard welcome to the big picture.

8:19 am
with tough resistance in congress lawmakers in the law house have voted in favor of keeping the facility open indefinitely the lower house of the u.s. congress has voted against closing guantanamo bay blocking the use of taxpayer money to house any of these haney's transferred from the prison hunger strike at the facility isn't a is false month and some long suffering relatives of the inmates from yemen are skeptical that will ever see their loved ones again despite obama's promises to send them how. that was such. that some might argue there's not all that much difference between the physical torture that many prisoners undergo montana mode and the emotional trauma and their relatives are forced to deal with at home like the family of abdurahman ash batty a yemeni terror suspects held at the controversial detention center since two thousand and two after his arrest the whole family was accused of links to terrorists you only know we have them america's support for human rights is merely
8:20 am
a show it only cares about its own people well it destroys the rights of all others who have been suffering for thirteen years now. in yemen president obama's recent promise to lift restrictions off get detainees specifically from the country was great. with nothing but sneers. start of these nonstop lies a bum remembers about guantanamo only during election campaigns and on holidays he promised to shut it down several times and so forward their cases to their home countries these are allies. meanwhile back in one town itself as the thirty yemeni prisoners wait for the u.s. president's promises to come true the full month long hunger strike against their indefinite detention continues prisoners have been demanding for nonmilitary doctors to be allowed to treat them nearly forty out of more than one hundred protesters are reportedly being force fed something they claim is torture in itself
8:21 am
they are close enough to death that the military sees a need to force feed them none of them enjoy being forced but i can tell you that and they have described being force fed in such terms as having a knife run down their throat back in yemen the relatives all say they are going to believe another word from president obama until they see this sons brothers and husbands finally return home. while the no more than this family's case is merely one of several dozen where people can only suffer and cry helplessly inside their homes but hope to ice last. abilities al hey jim a son in yemen. a fire the peak of the morning rush hour on the moscow metro has left sixty one people needing medical treatment seventeen of those have to be taken to hospital that israel's now from. the movement of train says now been
8:22 am
resumed in moscow as much although we did take several hours to fix that faulty power cable for now thousand people have been evacuated in total over sixty passengers in need of medical assistance including one six year old boy most of the injuries are connected with smoke inhalation and three people are being treated in intensive care units now it all started to add to the ground zero eight here moscow time the steady peak of the morning rush hour when the measure was used by hundreds of thousands of people and this is exactly the time when there's main power people short circuited inside a tunnel linking two essential metro stations this is one of gordie's had to suspend the movement of trains for the first time and started evacuating people. it didn't take them a few hours to fix that cable and shortly after be received the movement of trains then a short circuit began at the same exact spot but thankfully that time there were no
8:23 am
passengers in the train so they were quickly able to drop on the fix-it and resume operations but needless to say the metro in moscow is of the most heavily used rapid transportation system in the world after the ones in tokyo and even though authorities deployed additional buses and trolley buses tens of thousands of moscow bites if not more head to massive problems getting to work or to school this wednesday. the hacker who turned whistleblower bradley manning and said he believes there was never any indication the army private was pursuing the goal of a using the enemy by leaking hundreds of thousands of state secrets to weaken leaks his statement came on the second day of money trial that could result in the twenty five year old having to spend the rest of his life behind bars another whistleblower just in a rather believes all sources are trying to use mining to get to their ultimate target julian assange and. bradley manning very much is being politically used
8:24 am
as a way to try to reach asuncion there have been rumors of secret indictments on julian assange here in the united states so the extent that this government has way over charged way over prosecuted and is going after. you as if he was a devil incarnate speaks volumes to not only making an example out of manning but also vitriol in contempt that they have against julian assange engine wiki leaks even though bradley manning has testified that he didn't know with whom he was dialoguing on the other and it could have been a song during the anybody he had no reason to think that it was a sign he was and he didn't understand it to be a saw and she thought it was someone from wiki leaks i think the government very much wants him to say that he was dialoging with julian assange in order to try to
8:25 am
go after julian assange. are you bradley i mean that's what a campaign in support of the how the whistleblower is asking with a list celebrities offering their support had to ask dot com right now to find out. i'd also line the invincible genetically modified crops by attack food giant monsanto is the most trying to explain how we've that was supposed to be destroyed back in two thousand and four has found its way to a field in oregon. minutes after being elected for his nonconsecutive term pakistan's prime minister. has called on the us to and its drone strikes in the country the high court declared these operations a blatant violation of pakistan's sovereignty and human rights also spoke to. whose allure of presenting drone victims against the us and he told us about some of the
8:26 am
problems with that. president obama often says that it only kills a bullet and doesn't kill civilians but yet he feels to give names and identities of those who have been killed in the use of strikes in pakistan now according to independent sources more than three thousand people have been killed in brazil just on in pakistan but not a single name has been given by a president obama or the cia which is occurring albeit strikes what we hear from news reports is just a few names of militant leaders who have been killed president obama is tall sure that he is killing militants and he has not killed any civilian then he has to give the names and details of all those militants who he has killed because for a pakistani i would be happy in a sense that if you have killed all those people who are creating all this terror in my cities if you have killed all these people who were here let you go probably for your way lucian of law but at least i will be happy that you are making me see
